إقرأ هذا الخبر بالعربية W460

Unidentified glowing objects, apparently meteors, appeared in the sky above several areas in Lebanon on Thursday, sparking astonishment among residents.

OTV reported that glowing objects were also sighted above the Lebanese-Israeli border and the Turkish-Syrian border.

Quoting astronomical sources, LBCI television said “according to the scientific explanation, the phenomenon of the glowing objects resulted from large meteorites.”

OTV described the phenomenon as a meteoric downpour.

LBCI said “glowing objects and fiery meteors appeared in the sky above the North, Marjeyuon and several Bekaa areas,” as MTV said “unidentified glowing objects, apparently meteors, appeared in the sky above the areas of Halat, Bsalim and Bikfaya.”

State-run National News Agency reported similar sightings in Akkar, Tripoli, the Bekaa, Byblos, Halat, Ashrafiyeh and Tyre, saying the objects were clearly visible.

It's a sign our politicians should put their petty private interests and Go to the Circle Table of Discussion requested by the President of the Republic, and leave us, the people live our lives in freedom and peace.

We'll prosper on our own. Just let us be.

Again we must leave Lebanon to accomplish something worthwhile
And if happened to accomplish something worthwhile in Lebanon they (out glorious leaders0 will find a way to get us to leave the country..... they only want sheep in Lebanon (political sheep or religious sheep).

According to elder people, it means "c'est un mauvais presage"... let's hope it isn't the announcement of an upcoming war.

According to the March 14 hopeless hopefuls, this is an indication that the Dr. Geagea's prediction that the Assad regime MIGHT fall this year MIGHT materialize. But then, according to the same hopeless hopefuls, aka the late-blooming warriors, this same regime has already fallen 5742 times since 2005.

We have 60,000 rockets that can reach them. The only thing is for those objects not drop a nuclear object on us.

Those 60,000 rockets hit the target intended 1 out of 25 times! "causing minimul material damage"

"Quoting astronomical sources"... Are you kidding?
I am sure these sources are extremely reliable in Lebanon. What astronomical sources?
It also can be a "dead" satellite falling back to Earth, or as the Israeli newspaper said, it may be a russian test missile

read the news its a Russian TOPOL missile that hit a target in Kazakhstan and what you saw was its 2 stages burning in the atmosphere

Correction: It was also seen in Palestine.

Asaf, stop trying to insert filthy "israel" in to everything. Get lost and dont post on our websites. Your not welcome. Go to your haaretz and the like and post there instead while you still can as all your zionist publications will be shut down together with your artifical state built on palestine and parts of syria. Better enjoy it while you still can.
